This full day tour from the Amalfi Coast combines the best of history and wines. You'll have skip-the-line access to the ruins of Pompeii, then head up Mt Vesuvius for a winery tour and lunch on the slopes. The panoramic views from the crater will round off the day just nicely.
After pick-up, you'll head to Pompeii, the ancient Roman city buried after Vesuvius erupted in 79AD. Before you make your way in, you'll visit a cameo factory, then follow your guide past the queues straight into Pompeii. Explore the remains of the baths, bakeries and brothels, and see plaster casts of its residents, immortalised at the precise moment of their death.
Next, travel up the slopes of Vesuvius to a family-owned organic winery for a tour the vineyards. A four-course lunch with paired wines will follow. In the afternoon, a bus will ferry you 1,000m up the volcano, and a guide will take you to the summit. On a good day, you'll see over the entire gulf of Naples.
